We have been fretting over this freezer ever since we started filling it earlier this year. Many of you got in touch with the names of people who can help us out with stickers, labels, designs… Thank you so much for that. For some reason (kids at home? Major – still unannounced – project taking all our energy and time? The global pandemic?) we just can’t seem to move forwards with the food packaging side of things, and we’ve been building up quite a collection of momos and curries all the while.
Yesterday we finally faced our fears and organised the hundreds of boxes we’ve been greedily stockpiling. They are not packaged up attractively at all – we’re still a long way from where we’d like to be for all the reasons stated above – but friends this is the food that you all know and love and have already freezer-tested through our home delivery service.
As mentioned, some of these boxes have been in the freezer for a couple of months already. Food can remain frozen indefinitely and is therefore safe to eat beyond the three months you typically see on packet guidelines. However, over time all frozen food will deteriorate in colour, texture and flavour, so the sale of the century is now on!
We are running a buy one get one free deal on everything in this beast of a freezer while stocks last. This means two boxes of dal for £4, two chicken curries for £8 or 16 big beef momos for just a tenner. And so on. Doors open at 11am on Thursday, so clear some space in your freezer now! Our opening times this week are as follows:
Thursday: lunch 11am – 2pm
Friday: lunch 11am – 2pm / dinner 5pm – 9pm
Saturday: lunch 11am – 2pm / dinner 5pm – 9pm
Hot food will be available during all these times. This week’s menu will be live on the website and social media tomorrow, Wednesday. You can come in and pick up freezer food with your hot lunch/dinner, or just swing by for the BOGOF deal any time while the doors are open.
A quick reminder that our lunchtime menu consists of street food-style takeaway meals for one. We are not currently taking pre-orders. Please note the date changes for this week and make sure to tell your friends!
Dinnertime we are accepting walk-ins and pre-orders. Ring us on 01865 499318 from 4pm on the day if you’d like to order ahead. You can also pre-order for dinner when you come in at lunchtime.
Do let us know if you have any questions, and if reheating our food at home will be a first for you, here’s a link to all the information you could possibly need – including video! – on our website so that you can gen up before you rock up.
Finally, as ever, a reminder that we contribute approximately 50 meals a week to vulnerable people in our community through our partnership with Oxford Mutual Aid. We really really appreciate contributions towards this effort. You can make donations through our website or in store. Thank you so so much!
